MERCURY MARINE 5hp Propane Sail Power Outboard
Mercury’s all-new 5hp FourStroke Propane outboard provides more convenience and less hassle. Sail Power model is designed for sailboats and features a 12 Volt 4 Amp charging system with a cable to charge a battery, allowing sailors to run lights or electronics. The Sail Power model also features a reverse-thrust exhaust relief hose and a high thrust propeller. Ideal for sailboats, but also a good fit for aluminum tiller, inflatable or jon/utility boats.
With a safety-first approach, the outboard comes standard with a propane auto shut-off valve on the engine and in the fuel hose connector. The included standard 6-foot (1.8-meter) fuel hose threads quickly and easily to the outboard and comes with a standard US POL connector on the tank side.
A 20-pound (5 gallon) tank of conventional propane provides approximately 10 hours of boating at full throttle.
